if u have a prefab computer, just look up the model # on the manufacturer's website to see if there are any updates. still doesnt guarantee that u will be able to overclock anything tho.

the model # of the actual computer, not the motherboard. if it's a prefab computer by a big company (ie. dell, gateway, hp, etc) then the model # of the actual PC should be pretty easy to find. then u should be able to find out all the information on the system from the manufacturer's website.

if it's not a prefab, then u can open ur case and look for a model #, most boards ive seen have the model # and brand and such written between the PCI slots.

CPUz
or
SiSoft Sandra

CPUz is handy for basic info, and Sandra is simply just nice for just about anything. Both should be able to tell you the board info, or at least point you in the right direction.

(in CPUz, click on the "motherboard" tab. In Sandra, click on "Mainboard Information" in the Information area. Please report back...)
